Design elements such as the double-cradle frame, the teardrop tank, the exposed driveshaft and the paintwork with finely drawn double pinstripes are reminiscent of the legendary boxer from 1936.

The classically designed circular instrument with integrated display is enclosed in a metal housing with a decorative chrome ring. The ‘BERLIN BUILT’ inscription on the face reinforces the bike’s origin. The state-of-the-art LED headlights to ensure superior visibility on all roads.

The BMW R 18 Classic is the most powerful boxer in series production by BMW. The massive 1,802cc engine resulting from a 107.1 mm bore and 100 mm stroke produces an output of 91 hp at 4,750 rpm. Maximum torque of 158 Nm is already available at 3,000 rpm, with more than 150 Nm available at any time.

The all-new BMW R 18 Classic sports a double loop steel tube frame. The constant mesh 6-speed transmission is in a dual-section aluminum housing. The braking system consists of a twin disc brake at the front and a single disc brake in conjunction with four-piston fixed callipers.

The suspension elements deliberately dispense with electronic adjustment options for superior wheel control and better suspension comfort. The rear swing arm surrounds the rear axle transmission in authentic style.

All-new BMW R 18 Classic is unusual in its segment. Offers three riding modes – ‘Rain’, ‘Roll’ and ‘Rock’ – to suit individual rider preferences. Hill Start Control makes starting off on a hill particularly easy.

Automatic Stability Control provides perfect control, whether the road is dry or wet. Dynamic Engine Brake Control electronically prevents the sliding of rear wheel by sudden closure of throttle. Keyless Ride system replaces the conventional ignition steering lock.

BMW Motorrad has also collaborated with renowned international brands to further add to the diverse range of accessories and customization. Two different design collections of milled aluminium parts are available – ‘Machined’ and ‘2-Tone-Black’ In cooperation with Mustang Seats, high-quality, hand-made seats are offered in different variants for a variety of purposes. A custom exhaust system is available in chrome or with a scratch-resistant black ceramic coating.
